    Kia ora,

    I’m pleased to report that we are making great progress with the detailed design phase for the Youth Hub buildings nearly finished. We are also looking forward to starting site preparations in autumn to make way for construction work.

    As we venture deeper into 2022 our focus is now turning to ramping up our fundraising efforts to raise the additional $12.5 million we need to build Youth Hub Christchurch.

    With Covid continuing to cause widespread uncertainty and disruptions and construction costs and inflation increasing by the day, the need to raise the additional funds and get building underway as soon as possible is more critical than ever.

    To assist us, I’m pleased to share with you our new fundraising videos put together by the very talented John Sellwood from Telling Lives. I also want to thank our Ambassador New Zealand netballer Jane Watson and our youth volunteers for starring in the videos.

    Please help us by sharing these videos through your networks or donating what you are able to. Every dollar gets us one step closer to making this dream for Christchurch’s young people a reality.

    The Christchurch City Council supported by the Youth Hub Trust will be entering mediation with the Victoria Neighbourhood Association to see if we can come to an agreement so that the Resource Consent for the building of the Hub is affirmed.

    This will happen at the end of this month. Will keep everyone updated.

    Thank you for your support

    Thank you very much for all your support this year. Our Highlights:

    The Government awarded The Youth Hub Trust a grant of $10milion towards the cost of building the housing part of the project as Shovel Ready Money, in July.

    The Trust was granted Resource Consent by the Christchurch City Council in November this year after a public hearing, delayed by Covid.

    Now we are facing another delay as the Victorian Neighbourhood Residents Association have appealed that decision and this will be held in the Environment Court next year. This will cost more money and we need up to $200,000.

    We now need your support as we feel that this site is exactly what is needed by the young people who will be using this facility. We will continue.

    We wish a very Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2021. Best wishes from the Youth Hub Trust, Te Hurihanga o Rangatah
